Have you just started a new show and somehow finished all five seasons in a week? Or are you tired of rewatching the same series over and over again because you haven't found anything interesting? Well, fret not because I have a list of shows AND movies you can feast on over the break.
If you're anything like me and enjoy a little crime, Criminal Minds and The Blacklist will be a perfect match. Though both shows are about FBI agents catching the bad guys, one delves into why these people do what they do and the other... well, let's just say they don't mind teaming up with the bad guy to find the others. Spencer Reid's puns about quantum theory and Raymond Reddington's use of sarcasm in every sentence will make you both laugh and love the characters you're supposed to hate.
Crime isn't your thing? That's okay. And while we're on the topic of quantum theory, you might consider the Marvel Cinematic Universe. You can go the basic route and watch the movies in their phases, or you can be the exception and watch them chronologically. It's a long list with 24 movies and shows to match, but the time will be worth it. Soon enough, you'll find yourself trying to find all the easter eggs that'll give you a clue as to what new hero or villain may arise.
So pick me, choose me, love me - sorry, just quoting an iconic line from Grey's Anatomy. This show is a favorite of anyone who likes a bit of comedy, gets attached to fictional characters easily, and loves the drama. And before you ask, no, I'm not talking about me. If you have Netflix, you can binge-watch all 17 seasons while getting stuffed with deviled eggs or sweet potato pie or whatever rocks your boat.
Still not interested? Well, these two shows might be more to your liking - The Vampire Diaries, which ironically isn't about a vampire or their diary, and Gilmore Girls. The first show will constantly have you wondering who you can trust and who you want to hate. Life is interesting when there are vampires, werewolves, and everything else in between. The second is a bit tamer but is still high on my list of shows to pass the time. Hopefully, you'll be eating just as much as Rory and Lorelai do on Thanksgiving.
Alas, thus comes the end of my list. A little note: make sure you don't let any vampires in your house, or the turkey might not be the only thing they take a bite out of.
Have a great Thanksgiving and happy watching!
